Lately I’ve seen a huge influx of good games that try to update the outdated capitalist realist Cyberpunk genre to the current political and economic landscape. Stuff like Disco Elysium is getting more and more recognition they rightfully deserve for depicting the hopeless and bleak death of modern revolution. However they’re still have some semblance of hope like with Ghostrunner having the corporation being destroyed by a revolution in contrast to the sad oppression of the system.

Another great but obscure example is whatever the fuck Cruelty Squad is. It’s fully embraced the boring drug fueled dystopia aesthetic while delivering basically Deus Ex but without the stealth. Compared to the faux shell of a Cyberpunk game 2077 was (full of cyber but nothing about the societal implications of such technologies other than some edgy infantile “message” about “soul”), this game have everything and everyone be miserable using the cyber-enhancements. Space colonization and AI being pipe dreams. Corporations are not knowingly malicious but only apart of the rot of capitalism.

Is it just me or did he do his hardest to be as unpolitical as possible in this video? Cyberpunk is a very political genre/setting, it’s simply impossible to not be political when discussing it, but he seems to have kind of avoided really discussing the politics.

It's almost impressive how you can spend 4 hours talking about a game like this and barely spend any of that time talking about its themes beyond surface level explanations despite how unsubtle they are.

Honestly that guy is either exaggerating greatly or the game used to be different (I just played it for the first time last week) because I don't even remember picking that many "communist" options unless it manifested subconsciously in my tankie-addled mind.
The fascist thing I kinda understand from picking joke answers near the beginning and I was talking to that old white guard reactionary retard playing balls and was just "yes anding" all of his bullshit because I wanted more lore dump, but I got the communist pop up first

As a latin american, its always good when these companies care about localization,regional prices etc, back in 2022 if im not wrong the Latin american representative was fired, the reason? latin america is not "profitable" enough so they will focus on NA and EU, mind you these are the same people that say they value equality, if they arent getting money you aint worth a rat's ass to them.
Second, Matthew Dawkins a Freelance Writer and Developer for Vampire: The Masquerade, is racist prick, who thinks and writes all native people as "Savages" ( he is writing about the Abya Yala ) ill add the prints

TLDR: dont give money to fascist pricks who only care for money and parade you like a prize

Proletarians are paid for their labour power, not the product of their labour. Pirating games is not stealing from proles, it's denying profit to capitalists.

Anyone who will then turn around to say "oh but then the capitalists can't pay the workers!" are counterrevolutionaries.

i dont have my hopes up for this remake
Even tho the story of the game is already stablished, Bloober seems to not understand what psychological horror means, take for example the blair witch game, in the good ending you kill yourself, to bloober team people with trauma are so dangerous, they're better off dead, the solution to mental health issues to them is bullet to the frontal lobe, if this game is a "re-interpretation" of Silent hill 2, we can expect the most shallow portrail of mental health issues, that game has good portrayal of menetal health issues, and dont even get me started on the medium game and their portrayal of a survivor of sexual assault and how they handle that narrative.
and before people say "oh what about the in water ending"
Difference is that In Water is never stated to be the definitive solution to the Jame's situation.

In The Medium, you only have one option and the game tries to hammer it in your face that its the only """""logical""""" way out. Even the achievement for beating that game acts like its a definitive solution to the topic, which is gross and irresponsible.

Considering Bloober Team already doesnt understand, or willfully changed the main character's behavior just from the trailers alone, do you REALLY think theyll handle the other characters and endings well?

 No.29054

Timely to make this thread when this article about Bloober's "next phase" dropped today
https://archive.is/ih1EO
>Layers of Fear was Bloober Team’s final psychological horror game. The studio didn’t advertise this fact, but behind the scenes, a switch flipped weeks ago: When the remastered and expanded Layers of Fear collection came out on June 15th, it marked the end of a phase that was known internally as Bloober Team 2.0
>Going forward, developers at Bloober will rely on action and player input to generate disquiet, and they hope that this nudge in creative direction will drastically expand the studio’s audience. This mechanics-first ethos was actually implemented internally in 2019, when Bloober began building the remake of Silent Hill 2 for Konami.
>“We decided that our next titles should be much more mass-market oriented,” Babieno said. “We’d like to talk with more people. We’d like to deliver our ideas, with our DNA, not by environment or storytelling, but by action. So all of our future titles will have a lot of gameplay mechanics. They will be much bigger.”

I do not have high hopes for it or anything Konami-related in general. That they outsourced it to some shitty sellout Polish indie horror dev instead of doing it in-house is tantamount to how much they barely care about the result as long as it sells. Fuck em.

 No.29190

I have disliked all of the recent slew of video game remakes by default, but the entire idea of remaking Silent Hill 2 is especially ill-conceived. It's famously aged very well and is generally considered one of the best games ever released, if not outright the best. Exactly what value is added with a remake? The only possible way it can go is down. Even if Bloober Team did everything right, it would almost certainly still be inferior to the original. And they are very unlikely to do "everything right", considering their middling track record and news like >>29054. Maybe the franchise reboot Konami is doing at the moment will have some positive effects by way of the other announced games, but the Remake is 100% a mistake just as a principle.

I liked playing the first one a lot as a kid. Wanted to make my own levels but they all looked like shit visually. I was really hyped for the 2nd one when I was in 5th grade but my fucking ps3 got YLOD and I didn't get a new one until I was in 8th grade and at the point lbp3 was going to get released in a few months and I had lost interest in the series. I did try Dreams a few years ago and it's really impressive, but obviously doesn't have the same feel that lbp did. I think MM kinda reached the limit with their "create a game within a game" shtick since Dreams is stuck between being too complicated for the layman to make anything impressive with while being too limiting and not worth the effort for those that do have the skills to make things beyond a one off game or a few prototypes when they could be using an engine that gives them more freedom over what they make. On top of being limited to the ps4/ps5 it just becomes a niche game with a small community that doesn't compare to lbp in its heyday and

I'm getting sidetracked. I really liked bomb survivals even though they were repetitive and low effort. Still remember acing the bunker and getting the square guy costume and having people online ask me how the fuck I got it and feeling like top shit.

Hi, My name is Zachary Zacharias, and I am the zookeeper at the zoo here in Goron City, and I'm here today participating in the fundraiser. Our zoo is greatly in need of some additional resources to help house and feed the animals, and continue to provide a wonderful opportunity for the children in the city of Goron. To help me here today, I've brought one of our animals with me. This is Tommy Turtle, from the zoo. Tommy is one of the outstanding attractions that many children come to see here. Obviously, they feed Tommy, you can see how large he is. He is far beyond the size of an ordinary turtle. In spite of the fact that he seems well fed, most of our animals are not, and we do need addition help buying food and helping to shelter the animals. So I'd ask you, please, if you're here in Goron City, just stop by the zoo, say hello to Tommy and some of our other fine animals, and we'd appreciate very much a donation to help us keep the zoo going. Thank you!
